The Professional Cartoonists’ Organisation are shocked and saddened to hear of the death of the London Cartoon Museum’s Alison Brown.

Aged just 39, Alison was the museum’s retail and front of house manager as well as assisting with exhibitions and being the face of many public events. She was a passionate advocate for cartoons and comic art and an instantly likeable person, popular with everyone who met her.
Having been admitted to hospital in December with a pelvic infection she had undergone surgery and transferred to a rehab ward where she remained in good spirits. Tragically, she then contracted Covid 19 which, due to her weakened state, she was unable to fight off.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Alison’s family and friends.

Here’s another tribute to Alison by The Cartoon Museum Director Joe Sullivan: The Museums Association

There is a fundraiser commemorating the life of Alison by raising money for both Cancer Research UK and The Cartoon Museum. More details here: here
